in 2005. the man behind all these numbers, nbc's senior political editor, mark murray, joins me now. mark, this is fascinating stuff, well-timed is and fascinating. it feels like abortion, the conversation about abortions feels kind of like the conversation about gay rights, where the country is changing on a bedrock issue. am i overstating it? >> no, you're not, and one of the fascinate things about politics is politics can change. bill mcinturff, the republican pollster who co-founded this survey ended up saying, this is a profound change. and it probably goes to saying why during the democratic primary we heard so many references to abortion, women's rights, and you look at these numbers right now, and the poll for the first time, there is a majority saying that abortion should be legal. previously, when we asked this question, only with one exception, the majority said it should be illegal, either with or without exception. so a really profound change here. >> can we go inside the numbers a little bit? i think it's interesting. do you guys have a sense on where that change has come? o

the senate. right now they have 45 seats. the democrats at 53. nbc news senior political editor mark murray joins me to talk more about this. mark, this puts a number of states in play now. we talk about west virginia after jay rockefeller's retirement and possibly south dakota, massachusetts as well. how possible is it for the gop to pick up six seats in 2014? >> it is possible. but it will be difficult. democrats are playing defense right now, thomas, given these retirements. but also just the terrain that the 2014 senate map will be on. there are democrats up for re-election in arkansas, alaska, louisiana. and now you end up having that open seat in west virginia. all of those four states haven't been hospitable territory for democrats in national elections, particularly presidential ones. but this is an eternity in politics. when november 2014 rolls around. there's a very long time. just two years ago no one thought democrats would be able to pick up senate seats at this point two years ago. at this point four years ago no one thought republicans would be having the very big november 20
